The Quest

The Baltimore Orioles have been in town since '54 and have had over 900 men don their uniform. My goal is to obtain a signed card of each player. If you have something I need, or see something you want, don't be shy, we can make a deal.

That's The Ticket

2012 Orioles season tickets arrived this week, bringing with them excitement, anticipation, hope and a little fear. Excitement, anticipation and hope are staples in the dillusional O's fan handbag. Those I am used to, the fear, I am not. Wifey is due April 12th, Opening Day is April 6th. See why I am afraid?

If she pops a little early, no Opening Day. If she goes full term, maybe no Opening Day. Or worse yet, a bleacher baby. The only way to ensure Opening Day is OK, a four week early baby. Not sure I want to be wishing for that. My gut says my son will be born on April 6, 2012. Say 3:05pm.

Got me thinking about a few other tickets I have gathered up.

Camden Yards Opening Day Ticket

Cal Ripken 2131 Ticket

Cal Ripken 3000 Hit Ticket

Cal Ripken Last Game in New York

Yankee Stadium Commemorative Ticket

I have an extra of the Camden Yards Opening Day ticket if anyone is looking to add one to their collection. Just let me know.


  1. What would you want for the extra Camden Yards opening ticket? I'm just curious.

  2. I haven't really thought about an actual value. Maybe two or three autos I need?
